If you’re bored of the same old hot dog toppings, give these funky variations a try:
It is not uncommon for people to put chips on a sandwich, but put them on a hot dog? That’s correct. A glorious barbeque style creation that is drizzled with BBQ sauce and topped with crushed Doritos, bacon and pulled pork is where it’s at. This summertime classic dog is served best on a pretzel bun for the piece de resistance.
Spice It Up Dog
For those of you who like to venture to the spicier side of life, this next hot dog is sure to please. Top your freshly cooked dog with melted cheddar cheese, spicy avocado ranch, shredded lettuce and blue cheese. Add some buffalo sauce on top for extra spice and enjoy!
Shish Kabob Dog
For a sweet and savory treat, try this shish kabob inspired original hot dog. It can be made either in the structure of a shish kabob or compiled into a warm toasted bun—this innovative wiener is quite out of the ordinary. On a bun, the dog can be topped with grilled pineapple, scallions, bacon bits and a light teriyaki drizzle. To make it into a kabob, simply cut up the hot dog, bacon and pineapple into bite-sized pieces and skewer them in a pattern of your liking. When they are fully cooked, pour on the teriyaki sauce and sprinkle a few scallions to complete the delicious meal.
Mac and Cheese Dog
Mac and cheese is a great side to your hot dog entrée, but what about combining the two together? Layer your plain old bun and hot dog with gooey mac and cheese to create the ultimate meal. Shake on some pepper and bacon bits to make this an unforgettable food venture.
Disaster Bacon Dog
Named after our own Windy City, the disaster bacon wrapped jumbo dog can be found in a tiny hot dog joint called the Wiener Shop located in Madison, Wisconsin. But for those who opt for the create-your-own option, here is how it is prepared: It starts with a grilled bacon-wrapped classic dog atop a toasted bun. Warm cheddar cheese is blanketed next with giardiniera and caramel corn. Yes, that’s right, caramel corn is a staple ingredient of this dog. The old saying, “Don’t knock it till you try it.” is all that needs to be said for this funky frankfurter.
